Yay, it's the weekend! That means it's time for a new challenge over at Sweet Stampin' and this time we want you to Add a Tag to your stamped creations.
Yep, it's another one of those flowers and leaves! Details of how I made them can be found here. I started off by embossing a piece of white card with the Couture Creations Tied Together embossing folder. I wrapped a piece of white ribbon round it and then used 1mm foam tape to add it to a mat of black card. I trimmed down a 5x7 card base to fit and glued the topper in place. I wanted the stamping on the flower to stand out more and so I went over it with a 0.1 fineliner pen and glued the leaves in place and added the flower on foam tape. I stamped the lili of the valley tags in black archival and cut them out and glued them onto the card. To finish I added some cream gloss Nuvo drops - not sure if I actually like them now they're on, but there's no way I can remove them!
I'm afraid I caved in with Hubby's Valentine's present on Thursday night, mainly because I was struggling not to mention going out to buy them and the fact that I was served by the same spaced out and distracted guy as last time we were in there.
I asked Hubby if he'd found his Valentine's present from me yet. Cue a game of hotter, colder as he wandered round the lounge trying to figure it out. I was crying with laughter as he was stood in front of the fish tank for ages and didn't see them. Mind you, it didn't help that they chose that moment to hide behind a plant! They were worth the £7.50 for the laughter alone!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and stay warm and dry (or cool and dry if you're in the Southern Hemisphere) and manage to get some crafting time x
